The Boschert CU Profi copper bar processing machine is a powerful solution for efficient processing of copper, aluminum and steel bars. The CU Profi can be equipped with five to nine tool stations and accommodates bars up to 20-feet in length, 9-inches wide and 1/2 -inch thick. Its CNC-controlled punching heads use standard thick turret “B” station tools (up to 1-1/2” diameter), with an optional “C” station punch in place of two “B” stations. Hydraulic material clamping in Y-axis on both sides of punch head ensures straight parts. This design allows for leadscrew threading for in-process tapping of parts. Part-marking options include ink jet or dot-peen marking.
The CU Profi’s feeding system utilizes specialized clamps to ensure complete processing with little waste. This feeding unit is supported on a linear guide and AC servo motor which guarantees a repeatability of plus/minus 0.004-inch.
Boschert recently introduced a new automatic loading system for the CU Profi series. This new clamping and loading system is programmable to streamline automated production processes without increasing staffing requirements. Operators can load a variety of widths and lengths of copper bar stock based on their job list. Once programmed, the system will pick up a copper bar from the sorted rack, evaluate its dimensions, clamp it in place and perform the prescribed punches before delivering it to the finished product tray.
To make the CU Profi even more efficient, Boschert also offers a mirrored version! With the mirrored version of the CU Profi, one operator can easily operate two CU Profi machines, doubling the production of copper bar processing without the need for additional labor!
Other features of the CU Profi punching machines include protective safety grating, light barrier system, automatic waste removal, front table support, unloading table behind the punching head, powerful hydraulic system with 15 horsepower motor, oil chiller, and user-friendly graphic software.
